 TA DAH February 7, 2013 By Deleo Heckman (Riverside, CA) See All My Reviews "Would rate 5 stars if the disc was only Dvorak's concerto. Janacek minus 2.1417 . But I got Dvorak's Beautiful, peaceful concerto so I don't care; I only listen to his. Your Selection is really extensive and includes new and old performances for tempting prices; luxuries in my mind, (small mind). Your service; timely. Thanks." Report Abuse
